Back for a third year, The Communications Council is pleased to announce member registrations are now open for the highly-sought-after AWARD Creative Leadership course.
The 3-day intensive residential is a crucial step in the career journey for aspiring creative leaders, with nearly 50 percent of past delegates being promoted to leadership roles within a year of completing the course.
Exclusive only to The Communications Council corporate members, the 2018 course will feature guest talks by industry leaders, and will be curated and chaired by creative legend Warren Brown, Partner at Gutthink & Partners.
“This course is designed to prepare and empower those that are ready to become a catalyst for the success of those around them.
“Personally I wish I’d had the benefit of this course when I was younger. For those who attend this year, if even only one thing from the course makes them a better creative leader then it’s been worth it,” Brown said.
Adding: “Inspiring others to be the best they can be creatively is wonderfully rewarding. Just ask Susan Hoffman, Co-Chief Creative Officer from W+K, who I’m delighted to say is joining me in this year’s Creative Leadership course.”
Three intensive days on site feature a series of modules spearheaded by leading ECDs, Agency CEOs and CFOs.
Sessions are highly interactive, combining workshops, panels, role plays and Q&As with inspirational speakers.
In addition, this year’s students will have the opportunity to learn directly from Hoffman during a special “Ask Susan” segment.
As W+K’s co-chief creative officer, Susan Hoffman currently oversees the entire global network.
Recently inducted into the One Club for Creativity Hall of Fame, Hoffman is one of the most admired and awarded creatives in advertising.
Her portfolio of work includes some of W+K’s most memorable and game-changing ads, including Nike’s “If You Let Me Play” and “Revolution”, Old Spice’s “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like”, and Chrysler’s Super Bowl spots starring Eminem and Clint Eastwood.
AWARD Chair Mike Spirkovski said: “In its third year the AWARD Creative Leadership course has proved highly successful with many of its alumni being promoted to creative directors.
“Whilst it might be an intensive few days it mirrors what it takes to be a creative leader and there is no better way than learning how, from those that did it best, like Warren Brown and other industry greats.”
Adding: “This year we have special guest Susan Hoffman who needs no introduction. Susan is an inspiration and will no doubt share valuable insights on how to build a successful long term career as a creative leader.”
The Creative Leadership course is proudly presented by AWARD – Australia’s longest-standing and most respected professional development programme for creatives.
